Ok, I see that I misunderstood the post, it was not directed at me,
but here is my attempt to answer this question anyway.
Right now I am using the google docs form feature to host polls, it is
very good, and if people want to change their vote, they just vote
again. The results are stored on a spreadsheet.
This could be emulated with a wiki.
I think the basic function would be some form of poll where
people would edit a page and sign it with a template.
various templates could be used, you would just need a bean
counter-parser to interpret it.
security is another issue, but the entire counting, limitation and
delegation could be implemented as an ever more complex bean counter
process. Basically it would be a talk page with special restrictions.
Changing their minds would just be voting again, and the bean counter
process would come up with a different sum.
I hope this idea is understandable and simple.
